The Give Grandly Coalition, with the support of the Grant County Community Foundation, is ready to launch the ninth annual Give Grandly fundraiser for area nonprofits on Saturday, May 7. The 2022 Give Grandly event will be live and in-person at the Makers’ Market in downtown Silver City.
This 24-hour community day of giving is our chance to champion the many nonprofit organizations in Grant, Luna, Catron and Hidalgo counties that help to make southwest New Mexico a special place to live. Local nonprofits serve our communities in many ways, from providing food pantries and shelters to promoting arts and culture, education, literacy, youth engagement, historic preservation, animal welfare, environmental conservation and community development. All of these nonprofits depend heavily on volunteers, grants, and donations to be able to offer their services to us.
On Saturday, May 7, 2022, participating organizations will have booths to showcase their work to the local community. The Makers’ Market will host the event from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm on its opening day in the newly renovated Main Street Plaza located off Bullard Street—that’s between 7th and 8th Streets—next to the Big Ditch Park in downtown Silver City.

STANDING WOMEN at 1pm on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 8, 2022
To participate please join us at Whitewater Mesa Labyrinths, Glenwood, NM
The women of Ohio call upon the women of the world to stand with them in support of a better world for all children and the seven generations beyond them. Last May hundreds of thousands of women and girls, along with the men and boys they love, in 75 countries and on all continents of the world stood together in parks, on beaches, in churches, at graduation ceremonies, in their backyards and at school yards or anyplace they could find to stand in a global wave of humanity. “We dream of a world where all children have safe drinking water, clean air to breathe, and enough food to eat. A world where they have access to a basic education to develop their minds and healthcare to nurture their growing bodies. A world where they have a warm, safe and loving place to call home. A world where they don't live in fear of violence - in their home, in their neighborhood, in their school or in their world. This is the world of which we dream. This is the cause for which we stand.”
